A small group of people had the privilege of sitting in on some pretty great workshops during Christian Heritage Day on June 6th.
One of those leading a workshop was Tom Davis – author, communicator, missionary, father, …. to name just a few of the many hats he wears. He has become familiar to me over the past few years through his websites and books. He travels extensively to follow His God-given passion to care for orphans, finding the neediest places and then making their needs known. Tom has seen kids and entire orphanages sponsored through loving individuals and local churches. Incredible.
One of his most recent projects was his first novel: Scared. After receiving it in my hands, I began reading and just couldn’t put it down. Beautiful, tragic and gripping are a few words that come to mind to describe this story that pulls at both your heart and soul. I highly recommend his book and when you’re done with it, pass it on…. it will challenge and invite response from many of us that may dramatically change lives.
